Round 4 – Essendon v Collingwood: As Far As The Sky


Anzac Day ~

I go along expecting

the worst





autumn drizzle ~

slowly the stadium






a muffled roar

ends the minute

of silence





lost in thought

after the Last Post

players already

in their positions





steady drizzle

diving in

for every tackle





wet afternoon ~

youngsters making

a splash




low cloud ~

a drop punt goes as far

as the sky





through the gloom





almost dark ~

somehow we find a way

to win
